In Catalonia, protests erupted Sunday after German authorities detained former Catalan President Carles Puigdemont after he entered Germany from Denmark. German authorities may now extradite him to Spain, where he’s facing charges of sedition and rebellion, after the Catalan government declared independence from Spain last October. His arrest in Germany comes after, on Friday, a Spanish court ruled 25 Catalan leaders will be tried for rebellion or disobeying the state.
